Classmates taking pictures of an exam paper from the teacher’s laptop

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: In our class some boys took an exam paper from our teachers laptop when he was out and they took pictures of it and maybe that is the same paper which the teacher is going to give us for the final exam. They did a wrong thing. I didn’t have the courage to stop them. What should I do now? If I complain then all the boys will be saying bad words to me and they will mock me etc. But I dont need sin. And maybe if they dont get that paper then they will fail and maybe need to repeat the whole year (so much time and money will go to waste waste). What should I do? 


A: Make taubah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
